Dharara the Eifel Tower of Nepal

 Dharara probably one of Nepal's oldest and tallest buildings. It can be found in Sundhara Road of Kathmandu. It used to be taller but an earthquake many years ago caused it to lose some of its height.

For many years it was closed to the public and only as around 2005 it was opened for public. One can pay the entrance fee and climb the narrow stairs all the way to the top. It is popular for both locals and tourists but honestly not too much to see here.

For your viewing pleasure, I have taken some pictures from the top and attached it with this blog post. (See below and click on individual pictures to enlarge)
